They can be found mounted in rows next to pathways, entrance of shrine and along the route which people use to walk around a sacred site. It is a form of spiritual practice called circumambulation.
There are many types of Mani wheels, but small hand-held wheels are the most common by far.
Larger wheels, which may be several yards high, contain numerous copies of the mantra and sacred texts up to hundreds of volumes.
